The "Edge of the World" is a place for a family farm experience, a couples retreat, the girl's pamper weekend or boy's poker & sportsfest. Whatever the occasion, it is a stunning place to relax and reconnect with friends and family, less than one hour from the city and 45 minutes from Joondalup or Midland. Take in the spectacular sweeping views of the Chittering Valley, enjoy the peace and quiet, go for a walk amongst the surrounding beautiful bushland and wildlife, read a book, watch a movie, light the fire, enjoy a glass of wine on the deck or visit some nearby wineries, restaurants and attractions. The kids will love the wildlife with Spike the echidna who lives under the deck and lots of kangaroos in the surrounding bush, not to mention the sheep and llamas on the property. Bring your bikes to enjoy the many mountain bike and cycling trails throughout the valley or simply take in one of the various walking trails in the area.
